About Jessica

Hi there!

I am originally from Colorado, but have been living in New York for almost five years. I taught in a charter school for four years- three of them in the classroom and one in an administrative (AP) and coaching role. I am a Teach for America alumni, and am certified by the state of NY to teach grades 1-6 in both general and special education. I have many years of tutoring experience with students of various ages and abilities, including students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs).

I absolutely love education and am very passionate about it. I specialize in working with students in small groups and 1:1 instruction, providing individualized lessons depending on specific needs and goals. I am skilled in increasing reading achievement and writing abilities for students, especially those who are below grade level. I work with a variety of curriculums and programs and am well-versed on the current and most effective educational practices. I now work for a company called Flocabulary, which uses music to increase vocabulary and supplement instruction for all subjects K-12.

I am familiar with a variety of reading programs, assessment tools and techniques to reach students of different aptitudes. I have helped students improve their reading and grow multiple levels in a single academic school year. I am also familiar with Common Core standards and standardized tests in the state of New York.

I guarantee the use of instructional strategies that are engaging and beneficial for the unique learning style of your student. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I look forward to meeting you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an undergraduate degree in International Affairs and Elementary Education from the University of Colorado Boulder. I am a Teach for America alumni, and have an MA in Childhood and Special Education for grades 1-6. I have three years of classroom teaching experience, one year of teacher coaching experience, and four years of private tutoring experience. I love working with students to help meet their individual academic needs and goals!
